This project is a challenge, technically and in terms of planning. “The totality of this project is unique for us”, explains Rob Lacroix. “Electricity, cameras, VHF radio, hydraulics, etc. All the systems must be attuned to each other. All the islands are connected to each other via IO-link communication and a global fibre optic network, and communication takes place via sensors. After successful implementing the technology on a previous project and being satisfied with the quality, safety and simplicity, we decided to use it for this project, but on a larger scale. In addition, all 20 engineering structures will be completed in 4 to 5 years. This is very fast, so good preparation and planning is crucial.”
EQUANS is very satisfied with the co-operation it has had from the other parties.
